International quartet co-led by composers Mathias Ruppnig (drums) and Tom Berkmann (double bass) and also featuring Tony Tixier (piano, keyboards) and Ben van Gelder (alto sax). Eponymous debut album released on Whirlwind Recordings in March 2019.
"An excellent debut offering from Scopes. The music combines accessibility with adventurousness, the strong focus on melody enhanced by rhythmic inventiveness and imaginative soloing."
